A Trip To The Airport

This is the time of year that we are making many trips to the airport.  Thursday Nicole was going, among other things.

Also, Thursday, two houses were being built in Buen Samaritano, the village below the dump.  One of those houses was for Melissa that works in the feeding center.  Melissa has 3 children and makes $50.00 a week. 

Nicole had some errand to run and then had to take some things to Buen Samaritano before she went to the airport.  As she was ready to leave, she said something about going to the airport.  Melissa's kids wanted to go with her.  Nicole said yes.  The little boy was so excited.  He told Nicole he had never seen the airplanes land.  They all got to see a plane land and Nicole let them ride the rides inside the airport. 

After the group got through customs, they went across the street to eat.  I am fairly sure this is the first time Melissa's kid had eaten fast food.  They all saved some of their food to take home.  Nicole was driving back to Buen Samaritano.  They saw a little boy begging in the street.  Melissa's some wanted to share his leftover food with the little boy that was begging.  He insisted that he give this food to the poor little boy.  He said the little boy was poor because he was having to beg and that he himself had never had to beg.  He did get to share his food. 

Nicole was very touched by this, as was I when she told me.
